fareed-zakaria-829x1024Fareed Zakaria will appear on campus as the 2016 Frey Foundation Distinguished Visiting Professor in the College of Arts and Sciences at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, contributing editor at The Atlantic, and Washington Post columnist Fareed Zakaria is widely respected for his thoughtful analysis and ability to spot economic and political trends. In his latest book, In Defense of a Liberal Education, he argues for a renewed commitment to the world’s most valuable educational tradition.

This spring, he will visit campus to make his case for how a liberal arts education is more than a path to a career, it’s an exercise in freedom.


The lecture will be in the Genome Sciences Building at 250 Bell Tower Road (across the street from Sonja Haynes Stone Center). The auditorium is on your left as you enter the street-level front doors of the building (which face Bell Tower Road).


The Bell Tower parking deck is conveniently located near the Genome Sciences Building. Parking in the deck is available after 5:00 p.m.
